Welcome to

The Sipping Witch logo

I would love to welcome everyone to my site. I hope my experiences with my friends will help your friends and you have wonderful memories. I hope to pass on helpful tips about drink and food around Virginia at wineries and breweries, and explore the tasty food trucks that appear at our favorite places.

My first visit was when the original owners had it and that was when I fell in love with the view. Kirk and Tom took me there on Mother’s Day, when I was missing my son , who was in California. They cheered me up with great company, beautiful view, and great wine....

Hi everyone!
I have lived in both Virginia and California. In California, I lived in the Bay area for 10 years and in Virginia, mainly in the Charlottesville area. Both areas are blessed with vineyards but now also with breweries. Since moving back to Virginia, I have explored all the new and existing establishments with friends and family. I hope in the next few months I will get to explore more with new friends here in Virginia.

Everything I write about is my opinion and we all know what they say about opinions. I have learned about adult beverages by being in the restaurant business and from enjoying them at vineyards and breweries. I feel that trying new things is so important to a balanced life. I will write about a place if I have been there more than once, because I do not think you can get a feel for a place in one visit. We all have off days.

I am a woman in her 50’s who has decided there are so many more memories that need to be made and I hope to travel and tell you about my adventures down the road. But for now I am going to concentrate on my own “backyard”. So don’t be surprised to see me at your favorite place trying out an adult beverage and better yet, shoot me an email and suggest a place your friends and you like. My email address is sippingwitch@gmail.com

I look forward to helping everyone find fun places to enjoy with their friends and family!

Till next time, Slainte!
